(97-98 points) This is a very structured Batard, which is more structured than many from this vineyard and in the vein of Montrachet. Full-bodied, dense and layered. Phenolic tension.

Full-bodied, dense and layered. Phenolic tension. Compacted and very, very impressive. Only three barrels made instead of six due to frost. Needs four or five years of bottle age after release.

Pale primrose. A fascinating nose of linseed oil first up but this refines itself with a few minutes in the glass. A good strong undercurrent of acidity helps extend the finish which is lemon scented rather than peachy...   Pale primrose.

Recently acquired from Domaine Leflaive, this Bâtard is superb, with a complex and expressive bouquet of nutmeg, mint, yellow orchard fruit and candied citrus peel. The palate is full-bodied, concentrated and expansive...   Recently acquired from Domaine Leflaive, this Bâtard is superb, with a complex and expressive bouquet of nutmeg, mint, yellow orchard fruit and candied citrus peel. The palate is full-bodied, concentrated and expansive, with bright acids and an abundance of chewy extract. (Drink between 2020-2035)
